Do I Need A Two Way Radio Licence?

In order to legally operate most commercial and professional-grade two-way radios in Australia a two-way radio licence issued by ACMA is required. A two-way radio licence issued by ACMA grants you a frequency just for you. And that will mean there is a very low chance of any interference meaning a clear two-way radio system.

Why Should I Have A Two Way Radio Licence

Operating a licensable two-way radio without an licence can land you with a large fine, equipment confiscation and even prison time for serious repeat offenders. Whilst the potential penalties of not having a licence should be a deterrent, this is not actually the reason you should have one.

Operating a two-way radio without an ACMA-issued licence means you are likely to suffer inerference and you will cause interference to others. This means your two-way radio system will not work very well and will not be very reliable. After all, you will be using your two-way radios as a communication tool and surely you’d want it to work properly?…

By obtaining an ACMA-issued licence to operate your two-way radios will mean you will enjoy interference-free and will cause no interference to others resulting in a highly reliable two-way radio system.


Licence Types
